An Important Note

Dear Readership,

A week from today, I will fly to Washington, DC, with the purpose of undergoing a lengthy medical study. The intent of the study will be to discover new and different treatments to address my bipolar disorder. It is increasingly looking like I will be away from home for four to six months. While it's possible that I'll only be away just three days, having talked with the power that be over the course of the last couple weeks, there's a good chance I'll be included in an extended study which will keep me in a involved in-patient setting for a good long while.

While internet access will be provided on site, I'm not sure how often I'll have access to to it. Likely I will be able to continue blogging to some degree while I'm away, but I'm letting all of you know now that posting won't be as frequent (i.e. not every day) nor as thorough in scope as it is normally. This could well be the last week of musical performance videos, to give one example. Since I expect my time at the computer will be much reduced, I will likely be unable to leave frequent comments on the sites of those of you on my blogroll.

I'm excited. This is something I've been seeking for many months and I hope the results will be beneficial. In the meantime, I'll miss you all and I hope you miss me, too.


Comrade Kevin.

I wish you the best of luck CK. I know you have been struggling with your bipolarism for a while now and I hope this study helps you and many others to find better ways to cope with this debilitating disease.

I'm wishing you a good trip to DC. Boxer said it so well, I don't have anything to add. I will keep a good thought for you.

Kevin, best wishes, I hope the study is helpful to you and to others who suffer from this (such as my niece). Hope you'll still be in touch but we'll be here when you get back either way!

Enjoy DC. Definitely visit the museums. The museum of the American Indian is especially worth a visit.

Hi Kevin-

I will miss and long for your daily singing. I will listen to "I'll Be Your Mirror" often while you are away.
I wish you every success in your search for balance regarding bi-polar disorder. I admire your commitment to the process and will pray for good outcomes.
I will miss you Kevin and I will look for you every day.
Peace and hope

Good luck! I don't know your specific diagnosis, but I know from a friend it can take years to get sorted out meds-wise, but that there is indeed hope. And I'll second the rec on the museums (I grew up in the area).
